Opinions on exhaust tape.

10 posts in this topic

I have just finished extending my header pipes and have painted them but there a little rough and dinged up I don't want to put much more money into them and don't really like exhaust wrap for various reasons but was wondering about exhaust tape which is a lot thinner and self adhesive.

Views on tape would be appreciated

Wrap good. Tape bad.

It's thin, it tears, it's IMO ugly, it's cheap for a reason.

so on a similar note: what sort of damage does exhaust wrap do? I'm guessing it holds moisture and eventually rots the pipes?

I just said fuck it and bought some wrap in the future I will try and save some dollars and get some custom pipes made. Then I don't need to paint or wrap to hide the ugly

I always heard that wrap would rot you pipe....I had some on pipes I made out of cheap car exhaust pipe. soaked the wrap and put it on....Smelled like it would burn off when I first started it, but it didn't..took the wrap off this month....(no rust)

So got one side of my pipes wrapped and on the bike and I got to say I like the look of them now just have to finish the other side and the exhaust is complete and I'm one step closer to finishing this thing.

That's purty.

My chrome V&H are old, scratched, dirty and blued. Been thinking about wrap.

Thanks Rduck it was my first foray into pipe wrap and I'm quite happy with the result.
